Street Bands Entertaining at 2012 SXSW; Austin Texas

Last night I ventured downtown again to enjoy the people watching and music listening at SXSW on 6th Street in Austin Texas. While I was there I could not pass up the opportunity to take a few photos. Ok, more than a few...

In addition to all the official music venues, you could not walk more than 50 feet without being (hopefully) entertained by musicians and other entertainers entertaining the throngs.

The guys in the foreground are members of the quite entertaining indie/folk/rock group NEMES that traveled down from Boston MA for the festival.

    Thanks all for the kind comments. For those that asked how it was done, it was shot with a Nikon d700 with the 16mm fisheye lens. I extended the tripod legs to their full length and then with the camera set to a 5 second timer delay fired the shutter and lifted the camera as high as possible by lifting the tripod so the feet were against my chest gifting me about a 10 ft camera platform. Then I processed the single raw file through photomatix for a single frame HDR then cleaned up the result with Topaz Adjust and CS5. Hope this helps.
    THANK YOU AGAIN,

    John
